Squad Selection: What does Oscar Pareja change for leg two?

That 5-3-2 did not work in the first leg.

MLS: Conference Semifinals-FC Dallas at Seattle Sounders Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

We know the task at hand for FC Dallas on Sunday against the Seattle Sounders. A big 3-0 hole is going to be hard to overcome but it all starts with the roster selection. In the first leg, Oscar Pareja opted for a 5-3-2 setup that saw a more defensive approach. It worked for 45 minutes but went all downhill in a hurry once the Sounders figured out how to break it down.

Now that the club is returning home and is facing a must-win situation, and a must score a lot of goals situation for that matter, changes must be made to this lineup.

Here is what we do know in terms of availability:

OUT: Zach Loyd (concussion), Mauro Diaz (Achilles)

LOAN: Moises Hernandez (Rayo OKC)

So what are you going to go with? Back to a 4-4-2? The 4-2-3-1 like we saw most of the season? Or something totally different?
